    Those cables are basically over-priced Kimber 4TC

    I thought they were pretty much the same as Kimber, but then I read that the 4TC uses "hyper-pure copper", and these say "constructed from silver-coated, hand-braided copper". So the metallurgy appears to be different. Would be cool to A/B them.
